If there's one quality or attribute that can describe His Holiness Srila Romapada Swami, it is his mood of service to his spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, our founder acharya, and his being unswayed by any obstacle that disrupts him from executing this duty. All other qualities are naturally manifest in him because of this. We are truly blessed to have his association in any form let alone have an opportunity to serve him, because as aspiring devotees we have the fortune to witness a soul who's completely acting on his real self-interest, as a servant of Krishna each and every moment while undergoing so many austerities and sacrifices for our benefit.

Hare Krishna. My sister lives in the DC/Virginia area and recently (December 2012) was invited by one of her neighbors to a home program. When she told me she was planning to go to the program, I inquired who the speaker was and she replied that she did not know. I asked her to go with an open mind and let me know of her experience. She came back with glowing praise of the speaker. She said she felt calm in his presence and his countenance was not just pleasant but effused divinity. She was satisfied with the class and the Q & A session. When she went to him after the program to ask some questions, he in turn first complimented her saying she seemed very attentive in the class. When I inquired who the speaker was, my sister replied it was HH Romapada Swami!
